About the Authors
  • This book is about Relational and Contextual Reasoning (RCR), a new theory of the human mind that addresses key areas of human conflict, such as the ideological conflict between nations, in close relationships and between science and religion. K. Helmut Reich provides a clear and accessible introduction to the RCR way of thinking that encourages an inclusive rather than oppositional approach to conflict and problem-solving.

    • Comprehensive presentation of a potentially helpful form of thought
    • Extensive discussion of different types of logic
    • Equal weight given to theory, supporting empirical data and applications to various issues
